Billy Kee comes back into the reckoning for Burton ahead of the visit of his former club Torquay.
Kee served a one-match suspension as Albion defeated Sky Bet League Two leaders Chesterfield on Saturday but the striker returns to contention for Tuesday night's game and will probably go straight back into the starting line up alongside Adam McGurk, who scored both goals in the 2-0 win at the Proact Stadium.
Matty Palmer may be the one to lose his place in the side to accommodate Kee.
Rory Delap has resumed training after a hamstring injury and a late decision will be made on whether he returns to the squad.
Torquay will be forced into a defensive reshuffle following Krystian Pearce's red card on Saturday.
The centre-back picked up a second yellow card in the second half of the 0-0 draw with Mansfield and he will now serve his ban after manager Alan Knill admitted he had 'no arguments' about the decision.
But Knill will not be able to call on defender Aaron Downes to step in. Despite the Australian's recovery from knee surgery being much quicker than expected the trip to the Pirelli Stadium will come too soon.
Midfielder Ben Harding is also on the comeback trail from his foot injury but is not expected to feature.
